The Student Experience

Who they are

In 2017, nearly 400 students from 6 schools/colleges went to 29 states, the District of Columbia, and 30 countries. 90% of whom would have had to turn down their summer experience or supplement the experience with a second job if it had not been for SIGP funding.

Where they went
